    So my iPad 3 that I purchased 4 months ago has already been super-seeded by the iPad 4.

    Can't believe how pissed of I am that the update has come so quickly. I feel like selling my iPad and telling them to stick it up their arses!!

    The faster processor and better front camera is ideal for the iPad 3 retina display. This is what the iPad 3 should of been!

    Buy the new one if it has features you want to take advantage of. You've had four months of incredible experiences with your iPad 3. Now sell it and take advantage of the speed and power in iPad 4.

    If they don't update fast enough, people get pissed. If they update faster, people get pissed because their toy isn't the newest anymore. People will never be happy. Technology moves on, people...

    i agree 100%.. announcing a newer ipad doesn't make the 3rd gen any worse. tech is always improving and people seemed conditioned that upgrades have to occur every 12 months or so.

    The 5th gen iPad (New new new iPad) will probably be out in another 6 months.

    Not in a few months, that is just ridiculous. Especially in time for the Christmas season. Sounds greedy to me.

    I can't feel pity. We all bought an iPad knowing it was eventually going to replaced with a newer, better version. It just came a little quicker this time.

    this iPad mini is going to make the iPad seem big and awkward ... it already does.

    Regular size iPad is living on borrowed time.

    Apple has traditionally stuck to 12 month cycles. Hell with the iPhone 4 they made that a 15 month cycle. Instead they cut the lifetime of the iPad 3 down to 6-7 months. Maybe if you spent $500-850 on the iPad 3 then you would have been pissed too.

    The competition finally reached a point where Apple had to act. Spare the customers' feelings and get left behind or fast track the next generation to be competitive?

    When's the last time Apple has updated such a flagship device this quickly? Never.

    We knew they wanted to get out of the cycle of a new iPad coming out right after Christmas each year.

    O well.... Update seems minor... compare to iPad 2 to iPad 3.

    Face time HD, A6X processor....

    They are not enough for me to upgrade.

    Agreed. Just because a never model is out doesn't mean that the iPad 3 stops working.

    I understand the disappointment.. im in the same situation but it didnt come with any guarantee.

    Just sell and upgrade if you really need too. Im just disappointed i brought a Wi-Fi only ipad - im using it soo much that i wish i had 3g.... oh well..

    .. the world is not going to end and there are more important things in LIFE..

    but now i need an iphone 5!!! iPhone 4 home button is ***** otherwise i wouldn't bother.

    Same feeling here. A little miffed that I just bought the LATEST ipad thinking that this was the ipad standard for the next 12 months. I am sure they aren't going to release the next iPhone 6 in April? or are they.
